    Algea or something else??

    I have had green green water for about 3 weeks now! I have been shocking pretty consistently the entire time and the water hasn't changed at all. Last night I cleaned out the filter with the garden hose and brought my levels back up. Still no change today. I also been vacuuming and brushing. The bottom never feels slimy or anything. Any suggestions?

    Do the OCLT to rule out (or in) organics: pool-school/overnight_fc_test

    What is your fill water? Well or municipal?

    Is the green a clear green or cloudy green?

    You're done SLAMing when:
    1)You lose 1ppm or less FC overnight, & 2)You have .5ppm CC's or less, & 3)your water is clear.
